Travelling around the world is for adventurous people, true. But some places are so dangerous, even the most adventurous people may not want to pass them. Some of the most dangerous roads in the world are in Chile, New Zealand, India, China and Pakistan.
Are you good at driving? So you say yes. Well, let me try again, are you good enough to drive in a mountain pass in Chile? Los Caracoles Pass in Chile is probably the most dangerous road ever. It is located in Andes mountain range and high above the sea level. When you look at a photo of the road, you will see it looks like a snake rather than a road. Good luck driving there!
Pardon me? You searched Los Caracoles Pass and don’t think it is scary enough? OK, so maybe you should try Guoliang Tunnel in China. Yes, it is a tunnel, but it is not your average tunnel. This tunnel is carved in such a way that you may have a heart attack while driving there. The road on the tunnel is very close to the edge of the mountain. In some parts of the tunnel, you can see how high the tunnel is and it is very scary.
Other than these two very scary and dangerous roads, there is also the Zoji Pass in India, Skippers Canyon Road in New Zealand and Karakoram Highway in Pakistan. All these roads are listed in the most dangerous road of the world. Most of them are on mountains. Most of them are very narrow and full of dangerous curves. But all of them only accept brave drivers.
Narrow: Something with small width
To carve: To cut or make a hole in a hard material like wood or stone
Adventurous: Someone who likes adventures and adrenaline
